Egypt needs tourists - South Sinai Governor

21 October, 2018 - 15:06

South Sinai Governor, Khaled Fouda, has appealed for tourists to return to Egypt.

Speaking during the International Peace Forum at St Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai Peninsula, he reassured international opinion of his country’s recent peacefulness and safety.

“Here we pray together; all religions; Muslims, Christians and Jews. It is a sign of the divine religion. Today we are sending a message in three languages to the world: Arabic, English and French, to assure the world that Egypt is a safe and peaceful country.”

Khaled equally said tourism guarantees livelihood and education for Egyptians.

“We are sending a message to the whole world through the media, so that they will change their minds and try to help and support us until our religious and general tourism develops again. We need tourists to visit the country, because tourism helps our people and our children to get an education, health care, a residence and jobs.”

Egypt’s tourism has been hid hard since a Russian passenger plane downed on the Sinai Peninsula in 2015 killing all 224 people on board.

The government has been battling to boost the sector which represents about 12 percent of the North African country’s economy.

DRC: expectations of INGA hydro project

21 October, 2018 - 13:56

Residents of Kinshasa are still uncertain whether Friday’s signing of the Inga 3 hydroelectric project agreement, for the production of 11000 megawatts will meet increasing power demands in the Central African country.

Despite the $14 billion deal, some residents are still pushing for major reforms in electricity distribution within the country.

DADA, a resident of Kishasa said “I want the government to look at how electricity is distributed, because in Congo, electricity distribution is a waste. We have refrigerators at home, we have other electronic devices that we can’t even use, but at the end of the month we receive electricity bills. You pay your electricity bill, but you only receive electricity on Monday and then, two weeks or a month later. “

Out of the 80 million population, only 15 percent have access to electricity.

With a capacity of 11,000 megawatts, the Inga 3 is expected to significantly reduce electricity problems in the country.

According government official, Bruno Kampadji,the project will provide electricity to South Africa and other countries in the region.

“Inga 3’s electricity production will reduce the electricity deficit of millions of people in Katanga province, the Bas-Congo region and the rest of the region, as well as in Kinshasa. It will also provide continuous energy to businesses and residents in these regions. But above all, it will allow the industrialization of this country. Some of the electricity produced will also be exported and sold to other African countries. “

The Inga 3 project is part of a program to expand hydroelectric dams along the Congo River. Disagreements between the Democratic Republic of Congo and its partners had stalled the project.
